Jon Jackson, retired
Within the broad practice of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Jon focused on making powerful architecture for science research and teaching. These designs integrated complex technologies, honored setting and locale, and nurtured people, culture and productivity. Jon’s work is notable for achieving both the exacting functional performance characteristic of laboratories, and vivid architectural expressions that respond thoughtfully to varied physical and cultural settings. These designs are not only complex machines for advancing science, but also humane workplaces shaped by concern for individual and social well-being. Creating good places for people is a central theme in all of the projects that Jon has designed and directed. His career paralleled the development of modern workplace that has emerged as a model for academic science and engineering research.
